And Block Joins Intersport
Chad Block moves into LMP1 at Sebring, not driving a Lola B160, but piloting Intersport’s Riley & Scott, with Mike Durand.

dailysportscar.comHe spent much of 2002 in KnightHawk’s MG-Lola, and raced the 675-winning Dyson example (the same chassis) at Sebring (right) and PLM last year, but now he’ll be racing against the blue and white Lolas – and the Intersport Lola Judd.

"I know the Riley won't be able to match the pace of some of the other LMP1 cars, such as the Audi and MG Lola, but it should be a steady lapping car that should survive the attrition of the 12 Hour race,” says Block.

“Last season I only did two ALMS races, so it's just nice to know I have a ride for such a prestigious event again. I need to thank Jon and Clint for bringing me on board, it will be great to work with a team that I spent the last two years trying to beat. For a privateer effort, Intersport has proven that they are a force to be reckoned with."
